I have built a photography site that shows photos alongside, user scrolls though photos utilizing a horizontal scrollbar.

Here is a link to the site

I have tried personally the jscrollpane wordpress plugin to personalize the feel of the scrollbar, however i have disabled it for the moment when i search for a fix.

The container is known as .scroll-pane

Thanks and happy year

Yeah, that will not focus on iOS. You should use two fingers to scroll this kind of element, but many people do not know that.

You should look at a responsive design that changes the way your site functions in mobile browsers.
